"All My Secrets"
Folk


A chill pill that will set you free forever

This record has a very dull, gloomy yet ever so beautiful tone that will make you feel sorry for everything bad you've ever done your entire life (that's right, everything - we're on to you). With very minimal instrumentation and a very subtle, mildly echoey ambience, it will purge all your sorrows, regrets and shortcomings and spread them all out in front of you so you can see them clearly. It somehow surrounds you with an air of remorse and heals you in ways you never even knew you needed healing or could ever even possibly comprehend. If you've never been to church before it will certainly make you church curious, and if you have been to church it will probably drag you down to the confessional for a really thorough confession - with a priest you'll never ever see again of course. It's deeply moving, deeply cleansing, and most of all, it won't judge you or make you feel like you deserve a good spanking. Rather, it will welcome you with open arms and gently comfort you in a warm, loving embrace. Stick this in your healing music playlists - hopefully you have one, we all need one. The track sits comfortably in position number 12 of Tennessee singer songwriter, Jessamyn's 12 track album, "All My Secrets" and brings the spectacular record to a much deserved climax after what you'd only be able to describe as an utterly pensive, deeply nurturing and satisfying listening session - 12 pure, unobtrusive, super chilled tracks that will make your day every single time.

Pop


Hunky-dory

A song for those special moments when everything's going your way and you're starting to feel like yourself again - when you're having a wonderful day and nothing less than bright, sunny, pure, old school, feel-good pop will do. One of those infectious tracks you won't be able to get out of your head for a very long time. It'll have you whistling down the street without a care in the world every single time and put the smile back on your face when you didn't even realise it had been gone for so long.

"Smoke"
Reggae


God put this here for you, and me

Australian reggae band, Echo Drama, one of the biggest bands of its kind in a long time, with a whopping 9 members just released a brand new album that has Melbourne's reggae fans on their knees. It's received so much praise left, right and center we thought we'd hold back on listening to it and take a quick look at some of their earlier works so that we are adequately prepared for what has been described as a monumental moment in reggae music. To give you an idea of how satisfying this band is to listen to, just imagine each of its nine members is Bob Marley playing 8 different instruments while singing at the same time - to cut a long story short - they'll take you higher than Fela Kuti, liberate your mind completely, make you see God, and then bring you back and tuck you in for a good night's rest, which you'll need for your brain to recover from all the organic sonic goodness.

"Smoke" is the first track on their "Bury The Weapons" EP, a five track album that earned them a spot right at the top of Australia's reggae music scene as one of the top new bands to watch. It was a record that not only defined their sound in its purest form, but also introduced fans to a cutting edge reggae sound that would never be replicated by any other band.

How you know it's time to hang up the old tackle box

There are so many fish in the sea, so how do you know when you've found the one you want to spend the rest of your life with? Is she your soul mate? Does she have to be? What if it doesn't work out? What if she says no? So many questions.

Well, truth be told, no one really knows but of course, no one will tell you that and risk looking like a total newbie. Many old folks will circle around the question for hours with meaningful but cliche answers, explanations and stories but no one will ever give you a straight answer if you were ever caught in that situation and had to resort to consulting with someone. The truth is - if you are not sure, then you've probably got the answer you're looking for already.

(Don't quote that - many of SRL's top writers are heartbroken SOBs who will never trust women again - or so we've heard - a word of advice from the editorial team).

Hopefully this song will inspire you and guide your heart in the right direction.

Like a teenage boy's first sighting of the lady of his dreams and the one he knows he must spend the rest of his life with for sure, this track will have you all tingly and soft inside, sweaty and pale on the outside and make you so nervous you'll feel like you are about to blow massive chunks of vanilla ice cream out of your rear end. It's got all the tender sounds you'll hear playing in your head when you meet the girl of your dreams and you just know she's the one, and it's got all the beautiful, heartwarming sounds you'll probably hear over and over again on your wedding day - soft, gentle and colorful tones that are so sweet and easy on the ear they'll melt you away like butter, lyrics centered around pure, unspoiled love and generally speaking, everything love songs seem to be missing nowadays. It's an old indie classic that has stood the test of time and will probably continue to do so for many years to come.

It's that time of the week again when the little or not so little Uber men and women inside each and every one of us with a smart phone gets their shine and serves their purpose in life - to get us to leave our Ferraris and Lamborghinis at home and get super crunked up without the fear of running over an innocent pedestrian or getting arrested at the end of the night - talk about a buzz kill.

Spectacular

Retro chic extraordinaire

Think space age Abba

This is what it feels like when you leave cloud 9 behind and reach for the stars


Only a few months ago when critically acclaimed independent San Francisco, US music composer, Megan McDuffee stepped out from behind the scenes making movie, television and video game soundtracks and scores and found her voice, this was one of her very first records - a sensational collaboration with UK synthwave music producer, Alex from Edinburgh. The track was such a massive hit with indie electronic music fans that it sold out on tape, vinyl and CD weeks before it was officially released on Bandcamp. Excruciatingly satisfying from start to finish, it will take you back to the '80s and then whisk you away into outer space and stop time just for you. It's one of those tracks with the uncanny ability to make you feel special, like you are the only one in the world once you hit the play button. It's lush, elegant, artificially blissful, intoxicating and it will brighten up your day every single time. To cut a long story short - it's the stuff dreams are made of.
